Car Vinyl Wrap
When your car needs a new look, consider car wrapping. For the last few decades, this technique was mainly used by companies to have their names and logos applied to their vehicles. Since high end sport cars were more and more wrapped instead of painted - think of the matte black cars- the popularity of car wrap vinyl increased. It is now a good way for everyone to give a car a new color or a unique print. And it doesn't need to be a sports car - family cars can have a car wrap too.
How does car wrapping work?The car is covered with a film. This film is very flexible and when it's heated it can be folded into every shape. The film is a solid vinyl sticker, which can have every color you'd like. Wrapping a whole car only takes two days. Wrapping just the mirrors or the doors is done even quicker.
Painting versus wrapping
For decades, people have been painting their cars. So why switch to this new technique? Car wrapping has a lot of advantages over painting. We made you a list.
- First of all, car wrap vinyl doesn't affect the original paintwork of the car. So it's easy to remove the vinyl and get a new one. Also, if you have covered your car in extreme flames for example, it will still be possible to sell your car to anyone with a different taste.
- There are a lot more possibilities when it comes to car wrapping. Every color you like is possible, every design or text you come up with can be wrapped to your car.
- Colors will not fade.
- Wrapping can be done quickly. Most of the time it only takes two days to transform your car.
- Often, it is cheaper to get a car wrap vinyl instead of getting your car painted. The costs depend on the total area that has to be wrapped, the complexity of the surface and of course the design that you've chosen.
Taking care of your car wrap vinyl
When you take good care about your 'new' car, the vinyl will last for 5 years or longer. Do drive your car too often to the car wash, but wash it yourself with normal car shampoo. Use some silicone free wax after washing the car. There are of course several specialized products around for keeping wrapped car shining.
